On Monday, January 5, 2015 Petco announced they will remove all dog and cat treats that were made in China from their shelves and online. Since 2007, the Food and Drug Administration has received 4,800 complaints of pet illness, including deaths, related to jerky treats. Petco became the first pet retail store in the U.S. to pull Chinese-made treats from their stories. PetSmart plans to have the treats removed by March.
